      Regardless of the plot, this is a classic musical

      First of all, I want to explain that "My Fair Lady" is a song and dance love film released in 1964, so it is different from ordinary love films with a lot of song and dance scenes interspersed in the film. I personally like this kind of music and dance film very much, whether it is "The Sound of Music", "Chicago" or "High School Musical", "Beauty and the Beast", "La La Land", I like it very much, and I don't even understand most of them. I find all Indian musicals interesting. Not everyone...

      #體女女# (Moving to the stock is really so young in the second year of high school, hahahaha

      Adapted from Bernard Shaw's script Pygmalion, George Bernard Shaw can come up with such a mythical character as the title, which is really appropriate. When I went to Baidu Pygmalion, I felt what a literary giant is... Although I watched Breakfast at Tiffany's three times, I was severely face blind. Last week, when my English teacher showed us My Fair Lady, I just kept sighing, "Hey, it looks like Hepburn." Because Hepburn, who just appeared as a flower girl, has a very rustic appearance and...

      My Fair Lady from the Linguistic Perspective

      The film "My Fair Lady" is completely different from that of "Arrival". Advent tells that the future is science fiction. It integrates a lot of science and technology, and My Fair Lady brings us back to about a hundred years ago. In British society, the story will be told slowly in the real social background. With this film, I opened the door to sociolinguistics in linguistics. The first question we think about is what is society. Through the film, I think that society is a structure in...

      fair lady

      The beginning of reality, the end of fairy tales.

      At first I hated that flower girl. She's vulgar, low, like every nasty bottom person. But when she went to the professor to learn to speak, I changed my mind about her. She's just a joke to the professor, but she finds a way out of class and clings to it. She still behaved vulgarly, but I saw her self-esteem and self-love for herself.

      When she came back from the banquet, watching the professor and friends touting each other and...

      fair lady

      Let's talk about the relationship between the film's story and the phoneticians. The prototype of the protagonist Henry Higgins is the last century British phoneticist Henry Sweet and the more well-known phonetician Daniel Jones (phonetician). The name Jones is very familiar. He is the inventor of the DJ phonetic symbol and the first phonetic symbol system to record English. At the same time, he has recorded a lot of languages, including Cantonese. He can be regarded as the originator of...

      Watching a movie about the same age as my mother made me sigh for 3 points: compared to the current movie, I finally found the originator of the dog-blood Cinderella-style movie; the gorgeous costumes really flashed to me, it was very chicken; nearly 3 The hour-long movie told such a simple story, and it was still the best Oscar movie of the year. I was...

    Creative background

When the play was performed on Broadway, Julie Andrews Edwards played the role of Eliza. Warner Bros. Pictures decided to make "My Fair Lady" into a movie.

    "My Fair Lady", adapted from the drama of the same name by the great writer George Bernard Shaw, was the number one topic in Hollywood that year. The musical of the same name has already caused a huge sensation on Broadway, and the movie version not only has superstar Hepburn and legendary director George Cukor joined, but the production cost of more than ten million US dollars is also rare at the time. "My Fair Lady" is an auditory...

    Movie quotes

    • Professor Henry Higgins: You see, the great secret, Eliza, is not a question of good manners or bad manners, or any particular sort of manners, but having the same manner for all human souls. The question is not whether I treat you rudely, but whether you've ever heard me treat anyone else better.

      Eliza Doolittle: I don't care how you treat me. I don't mind your swearing at me. I shouldn't mind a black eye; I've had one before this. But I won't be passed over!

      Professor Henry Higgins: Well then, get out of my way, for I won't stop for you. You talk about me as though I were a motor bus.

      Eliza Doolittle: So you are a motor bus! All bounce and go, and no consideration for anybody. But I can get along without you. Don't you think I can't!

      Professor Henry Higgins: I know you can. I told you you could.


      Professor Henry Higgins: [quietly] You've never wondered, I suppose, whether... whether I could get along without you.

      Eliza Doolittle: Well, you have my voice on your phonograph. When you feel lonesome without me you can turn it on. It has no feelings to hurt.

      Professor Henry Higgins: I... I can't turn your soul on.

      Eliza Doolittle: Ooh, you are a *devil*. You can twist the heart in a girl the same way some fellows twist her arms to hurt her!

    • Colonel Hugh Pickering: I'll have you know, Doolittle, that Mr. Higgins' intentions are entirely honorable!

      Alfred P. Doolittle: Oh, 'course they are, guv'nor. If I thought they wasn't, I'd ask fifty.

      Professor Henry Higgins: [shocked] You mean to say you'd sell your daughter for fifty pounds?

      Colonel Hugh Pickering: Have you NO morals, man?

      Alfred P. Doolittle: Nah. Nah, can't afford 'em, guv'nor. Neither could you, if you was as poor as me.

    • Professor Henry Higgins: I know your head aches; I know you're tired; I know your nerves are as raw as meat in a butcher's window. But think what you're trying to accomplish. Think what you're dealing with. The majesty and grandeur of the English language, it's the greatest possession we have. The noblest thoughts that ever flowed through the hearts of men are contained in its extraordinary, imaginative, and musical mixtures of sounds. And that's what you've set yourself out to conquer Eliza. And conquer it you will.
